The Gay Sex Ban In Singapore Is Challenged

Here’s a story from the global front that I didn’t even know existed. Obviously, there’s a gay sex ban in Singapore. And one guy is trying to challenge it.

A 61-year-old retired general practitioner in Singapore has filed a legal action against the government to end the country’s ban on gay sex.

Here’s the entire story. I hope he’s successful. Unfortunately, there are still other countries with gay sex bans.

Royal Barry Wills Architecture and Design: “Contemporary Colonial”

This is way, way off topic for me, but I wanted to post something about the architect, Royal Barry Wills, to see if I could get any information about him. Tony and I own a rare Royal Barry Wills home and I can’t seem to find any information about his contemporary designs. There are tons of articles about his traditional designs, but very little about his contemporary designs.

Wills was born in Melrose, Massachusetts, and in 1918 graduated from M.I.T as an architectural engineer. From 1919 until 1925, he worked as a design engineer for the Turner Construction Company of Boston, while engaging in his own architectural practice on the side. To advance his business, he regularly published sketch plans and elevations in the Boston Transcript

He’s actually one of the most well known architects of the 20th Century and most famous for his traditional Cape Cod designs. But no one seems to know much about his contemporary designs. I found a few things on the web, but not all that much.

When Tony and I bought the house 17 years ago we were told it was the design of a well known architect, but at the time we didn’t care much about that. We just liked the house and totally forgot about it. Then recently, someone contacted us and they told us it’s actually a Royal Barry Wills design called “Contemporary Colonial,”  and we’d like to know more about it. There’s just not that much info about the contemporaries. So if anyone out there knows anything about these designs please feel free to contact me. You can either comment here, or e-mail me. My e-mail is on the sidebar in the “About” section.
